Constable Jo also had some difficult tasks that she ran us through, where we had to practice our turning skills and giving way. We had to ride forward, check behind us for traffic, signal that we were going to turn and then give way to the through traffic.
It was tricky to remember all of the things that we needed to do to be safe, but we did get better the more we practised.
These are all skills that we need to continue to work on a LOT before we are ready to ride on the road on our own!
Our last balancing challenge was to ride as slowly as we could over a very short distance (approx 3m)
Everyone had a go and times ranged from 6.4 seconds to 19.5 seconds.
Jaxon took out the title and won the prize, which was a real accomplishment as he was on the biggest bike of all!
The whole session was really brilliant and we all had a wonderful time working on our biking skills. We realise that we still have a lot to work on, but we will keep thinking about these skills prior to our class bike ride in a couple of weeks.
